Updates and Summer Adventures


There have been so many happenings and adventures since my last post. I have been wanting to come back here sooner to share my story with you but time has just not allowed. I know you know what I am talking about.   We all have those moments where life gets so busy and it is hard to juggle it all.
Anyway life is good! I will be updating this beautiful space here for you more and more. A few things have changed already on the right hand sidebar and  if you are interested, I will be offering space for you to advertise your blog, biz or social network page on a monthly basis. The space available is upon approval and is limited to the size I have available at the time. Let me know if you want to chat more about it in the comments.
Also, You will notice that I have created an easier way for you to donate or tip of you will to my Creative Content on Social Media.  Just visit my PayPal Me Button on the right hand sidebar.  No obligation of course to donate, but there if you would like to support what I do.
Soon, I will be posting the happenings of the many Summer Adventures that Jimi and I have been involved in .  In addition, I am on a new mission for 2018. I have started a hash tag to honor it as #savetheearthartfully
What this means for me is that I am working on using up all of the beautiful fabrics that I have been keeping for years and turning them into something lovely and very magical. All of my Love and Energy is in this work.
I bring it to you in the form of beautiful bohemian beads wrapped in wire to be used in so many ways....planner charms, book charms, book marks, window beads, handbag charms...etc.
Goodness these are so addicting and I am Addicted already!


So....My Beautiful Souls, I will be sharing more of this and all of the Summer Adventures I have in Photo's with you soon!
Have a Glorious Sunday filled with all sorts of Magical Goodness!
Much Love,
💜💜💜

A Snippet of My Studio~Where Milady Leela Creates

I thought that I would share a snippet of my Studio Space with you...this space is one of My Magical Spaces of Home.  It is a Space where I Dream,Wish, Read,Write and Create.

 I love this cozy area..I have included a beautiful round table that my Dad had gifted to me. Under the glass is a wooden ships wheel and the base is an iron anchor.  It symbolizes both wanderlust and grounding of my soul to me at the same time.
 I love how the morning light sneaks into the window.
 Books and more books... see my Book of Shadows in the upper left hand corner?  I have been working in her more as of late.  I have made it a ritual to work in her at each full moon cycle and if Spirit calls before, I will do so also.
 Another view of my enchanted Bookcase...see the Tim Burton Inspired Pumpkin on the shelf? I made her at The Teacup and Grounds during one of our Pumpkin Painting Classes.
 Yet another Enchanted Bookcase and reading nook. Oh the books I have...so many to read but so little time.  Who else has that issue?
 My art table is where many of my projects begin.


But the Real MAGIC happens here!   On this desk...where each week Grace is Enchanted with Dreams and Goals to Manifest as well as the all of the Happenings in My Enchanting World.

I invite you to join my Facebook Group herehttps://www.facebook.com/groups/389873328038583/
if you have a love for creating Vision Boards or working Magic into your Planner.

I have missed all of you as I have been so busy with music and creating as of late...but I am here now.  I hope you enjoyed this little snippet into my world.

Much Love,
♥♥♥

Enchanting Grace and Musical Moments


 I have chosen to give my Planner a name as she has been speaking to me quietly each week to do so.
Since deciding to use my weekly spreads as a Vision Board for the happenings and goals I have planned and want to achieve, I have seen a constant of beauty and grace unfold as I create each spread.  Therefore, I decided to name her "Grace".  My planner definitely has taken on a very feminine form and I have been able to see that each week my life journey is leading me into a path that is helping me to grow spiritually and emotionally. It is so very important to know that we never stop learning in life~there are many lessons to be learned and I  look forward to each and every new adventure of the journey.
      

  Finding Truth in this journey with Grace and being one with the ebb and flow of life is such a Magical experience!!!  I encourage you to create vision boards for yourself in a book, planner or journal as I am.  You will be delighted and amazed at how it helps to calm your spirit and take you places that you might not have allowed yourself to go before.



Join me on Facebook in my Planner People/ Vision Board Creators Group.  It is a place to be inspired and enjoy friends that are like minded. I would love for you to check it out and share it with those whom you know would also enjoy.
Speaking of Planners etc...I have recently shared a Free Planner Printable with my Group to use in their creative process. Since then, I have also created two more Printable Sheets.  They will be available for your consideration to purchase at $5.00 per sheet. You do not have to a part of the Planner Group to get these.  I will list them in my Etsy Boutique also.  If you want one, message me to let me know and I will electronically send it to you for printing.  I think you will love them as much as I have loved creating them for you.  I have also included some of my favorite quotes ...my goodness, did I mention... I Love them?!!!
In addition, I have had some Musical Moments this past week that I wanted to share.
I mentioned in an earlier blog post that our Band "The Sidewinder Band" was going to be performing at The Monaca Community Days Celebration.


it was a Fabulous time!!! I invite you to check out our Band Page for more photo's and video's of the event. http://www.facebook.com/thesidewinderbandpittsburgh

It was truly a Blast!!!!!

Hope your week is going Awesome!!

Much Love,
